NABORS NET LOSS $583 MLN

NABORS NET LOSS $583 MLN

Nabors Announces Second Quarter Results

Notable items:

  • Quarterly reported EPS was ($0.65), or ($0.26) after excluding impairments and losses related to divested businesses and assets, primarily C&J Energy Services
  • Reduced debt by $87 million and net debt by $121 million during the quarter
  • Received awards for three Lower 48 newbuilds
  • Started recognizing revenue for MODS 400 GOM platform rig

Nabors Industries Ltd. ("Nabors") (NYSE: NBR) reported second quarter 2016 operating revenues of $571.6 million, compared to operating revenues of $597.6 million in the first quarter. Net income from continuing operations for the quarter was a loss of $186.6 million, or ($0.65) per diluted share, compared to a loss of $396.6 million, or ($1.41) per diluted share, last quarter. Net income from continuing operations for the second quarter includes a loss of $0.39 per share due to impairments and losses related to disposed businesses and assets. The largest component, totaling $0.34 per share, is comprised of an impairment to the carrying value of the Company's investment in C&J Energy Services Ltd. ("C&J") and its proportionate share of C&J losses from the prior quarter. In addition, the second quarter benefitted from the renegotiation of two contracts, as well as early termination revenue that improved reported net income by $24.1 million or $0.09 per share.

Anthony Petrello, Nabors' Chairman, President, and CEO, commented, "Thanks to our global market position, stringent cost management and incremental revenue from two contract renegotiations, we were able to achieve a sequential increase in adjusted EBITDA, despite lower activity and pricing. Additionally, continued focus on capital expenditures and expense control has led to a reduction in net debt of nearly $140 million year-to-date.

"Operating income for the Company remained flat quarter over quarter, largely attributable to favorable results in the Gulf of Mexico and our international business, offset by declines in Rig Services, Alaska and Canada. Our Gulf of Mexico results reflect amended contract terms for the MODS 400 deepwater platform rig, which include partial recovery of standby revenue for past quarters.

"We completed two of our three recently introduced PACE®-M800 AC rigs under construction, with completion of the third expected by the end of September. We have executed a contract for the first rig and are finalizing contracts for the other two. Our pad-optimized PACE®-X rig also continues to set new performance records.

"We remain diligent in managing the current cycle, particularly in light of the recent pullback in oil prices, while maintaining our flexibility to capitalize on opportunities."

Segment Results

Adjusted operating income for the second quarter was a loss of $53.4 million, essentially flat from the first quarter. During the second quarter the Company concluded negotiations on a contract amendment to the MODS 400 platform rig in the Gulf of Mexico and resolved a contract dispute in Angola. In addition, early termination revenue totaled approximately $14.3 million. These items had a combined favorable impact on results of $29.7 million, as compared to $3.6 million for early termination revenue in the first quarter.

Drilling and Rig Services adjusted operating income was a loss of $25.0 million compared to a loss of $18.6 million in the first quarter. Quarterly adjusted EBITDA in these business lines decreased sequentially to $193.4 million, a 3% decline from the previous quarter. For the quarter, the Company averaged 159.1 rigs operating at an average gross margin of $15,850 per rig day, compared to 187.9 rigs at $13,407 per rig day in the first quarter. The Company expects additional declines in near-term volume and pricing, as term contracts expire and adjust to spot market rates in the lower 48, and international markets continue to adjust to commodity prices.

International adjusted operating income increased by 15% sequentially to $53.9 million due to several beneficial revenue items and cost improvements. Quarterly adjusted EBITDA in this segment increased by 2% sequentially to $150.6 million. Compared to the second quarter, the Company expects decreasing quarterly income in the near term, reflecting activity declines and the absence of specific revenue events of the second quarter. Increased bidding activity in the Middle East and planned 2017 budget increases by certain Latin American customers imply an upturn is possible in the first half of next year. In Canada, the usual sequential decrease in results due to the annual second quarter break up was minimized by the historically low first quarter rig counts. Subsequent quarterly results should reflect a modest improvement.

The U.S. Drilling segment posted an adjusted operating loss of $48.3 million for the quarter, reflecting further activity declines and margin erosion offset by the additional standby revenue agreed with our customer for the delayed startup of the MODS 400 platform rig. The Lower 48 operation saw 18% fewer rigs working compared to the first quarter, with an average rig count of 44. A rig count improvement late in the quarter implies a bottoming in activity. Provided oil prices stabilize into the $50 per barrel range, the Company expects the near-term rig count to increase gradually, albeit at lower average margins, as legacy contracts renew at current spot day rates. Subsequent to quarter end, the Company commenced mobilization of its second arctic coiled tubing drilling rig to the North Slope of Alaska with startup anticipated to occur in late third quarter.

Rig Services, which consists of the Company's manufacturing, directional drilling, and complementary services, reported an adjusted operating loss of $19.7 million. While the broader market continues to struggle in these segments, the Company is encouraged by customers' adoption of its technologies and interest in its comprehensive offerings.

William Restrepo, Nabors' Chief Financial Officer, stated, "Our company's strategy and preparation continue to contain the damage inflicted by the severity and length of the current downturn. Capital allocation over the past five years to international markets with lower cost reservoirs, as well as intense focus on developing advanced drilling technologies, have helped us continue to perform well nearly two years into this downturn. Early actions to control cost and capital expenditures have also contributed to the positive free cash flow that we had anticipated. Finally, the steps taken to strengthen our liquidity position before the start of this downturn have proven extremely valuable and have prevented the need for onerous capital market transactions in a very unfavorable environment. In addition to our current cash balances, our $2.25 billion revolver remains undrawn. And although we see signs of improvement in both international and U.S. markets, we remain committed to maintaining liquidity and financial discipline, while targeting positive free cash flow during the remainder of the year."

Mr. Petrello concluded, "I am pleased with our results this quarter in light of historically low rig counts and the most challenging drilling market in decades. Since this downturn began in 2014, Nabors' unique best-in-class global footprint and technological innovations have allowed us to mitigate the impact of the implosion in North American activity, preserve our sizeable liquidity, and position the Company for further growth."
